Daniel Radcliffe Talks About His New Movie "The Woman in Black"

Daniel Radcliffe spoke exclusively to Total Film magazine about his first post-Potter foray onto the big screen, in Hammer Film's adaptation of The Woman in Black. Filming is set to begin on September 26 at the world-renowned Pinewood Studios.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is bidding farewell to the character what made him an icon the world over next year.

But he’s not resting on his laurels – he’s about to start shooting an adaptation of Susan Hill’s 1983 novel The Woman In Black for the newly-resurrected Hammer Studios.

Scripted by Jane Kick-Ass Goldman and directed by Eden Lake’s James Watkins, the film marks a graduation of sorts for Radcliffe in a number of ways.

“We were doing auditions for my son yesterday which was bizarre,” the actor exclusively tells Total Film. “But it’s very exciting and James Watkins is fantastic. He might kill me for telling you this, but he’s actually started working with an acting coach to give him a better idea of how to approach stuff with actors.

“Which is a brilliant thing – I don’t know of any other directors doing that. He’s inspired and we’re uncannily on the same page about the film. We met and we agreed that this film is not a scary movie but a film about loss and family and grief.”
